First visit to the grandson's palace.
It seems that a new office was completed a year ago.
The spacious and bright precincts are very comfortable.
Twenty years later, I would like you to grow up and visit with a smile.

I had been injured repeatedly in the first half of this month, so I visited for the first time in a long time to buy an amulet.
When I visited the shrine office, it turned out to be a very beautiful building.
It was renovated last summer.

5.0a week ago

It is a charming shrine with a large and bright precinct, a dignified main shrine, and a newly built and modern design but a shrine office that blends into the precincts.

Large site, carefully maintained. Goshuinsho and Ofuda can be found at the modern office.
